Areu Areu Re-Release
(2022/11/01) In 1991, photographer Reiner Pfisterer, a friend and companion since Camouflage was founded, celebrated his 24th birthday. Heiko and Marcus played a surprise concert as "Areu Areu" for him with cover versions and 2 very early Camouflage songs. A few weeks after the party, Heiko and Marcus told their A&R manager at the time about the project, and in 1992 a small edition was released on CD.
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary, the Areu Areu EP will be re-released as an extended edition on the Bureau B label on November 18th, 2022. In addition to the original tracks, this also contains the instrumental versions of all songs. For the first time Areu Areu will also be available on vinyl. There is also an edition of 300 copies in red vinyl available exclusively in the tapeterecords shop.

We're thinking of our Ukrainian friends
(2022/03/03) Camouflage have spoken out on Facebook about the situation in Ukraine:
Camouflage sends solidarity and hope to the people of Ukraine and everyone else affected by this attack, including those with the courage to protest against tyranny on the streets in Russia and Belarus. We stand right beside you. We hope that Putin and his clique will be held accountable for these inhuman acts. For many years a photo of the newspaper „Правда“ has been on the cover of our debut album. Правда = PRAVDA = TRUTH. We ask all our friends in Russia to help spread this TRUTH about the WAR in Ukraine and put an end to it all. Only you can really do this!
M.I.N.E - Empires
(2022/02/24) Marcus Meyn has posted a previously unreleased song by M.I.N.E on Facebook that is appropriate to the situation in Ukraine:
I was thinking about, what can I do to show my protest and my support… I can’t tell if it’s naive or whatever, but I’m an artist and my creativity is my possibility to spread my thoughts around the world! I wrote a song when this problems started after the last election in Belarus but it’s also a song for the situation we have in the Ukraine now…
…keep in mind,
this world will change.
As you behave,
is coming back again…
We raise our voices and take control.
This is the way, this world should be,
Come on, there’s so much more,
Let’s talk about it…!
